Call me crazy, but I feel like this search ought to come up with at least a few results.

    Hello, and thanks for asking.

    Well, yes and no.

    If you try this search instead
    which is the same one, only for the month of January rather than for the whole year, you get 44944 hits. That might have something to do with the search failure over the time span of the whole year.

    If you really want the information in terms of raw numbers, doing a search month-by-month will probably suffice.

    PS -- I inquired further. Interestingly enough, it appears that the problem is with that particular year of 2009. Any search using that time span will fail.
    We do have a replacement Search function on the drawing board. It's not clear when it will be deployed, but we do agree that an update/upgrade would help quite a bit.
